Focus and Scope
The LSE Law Review welcomes submissions from every level of legal study and practice, including those from practitioners, academics, judges, and students. Submissions may take the form of an article, a legislative or case note, or a letter to the editor. All submissions are subject to a meticulous double-blind review process by members of the Editorial Board.
The Review prepares a Summer, Winter, and Spring Issue and collates them into a single Volume for annual publication.

The Review held its inaugural launch night in 2016. It started as a student-run law journal seeking to provide a platform for high quality legal scholarship, with the aim of contributing to debates pertaining to all areas of the law. We have now published four volumes online and in-print, and run an active blog showcasing shorter pieces on topical legal issues.
